'Dalit Theology and Christian Anarchism is an excellent contribution to the field of Dalit theology, especially in the area of political theology. It convincingly and artfully moves Dalit Studies stridently, creatively and meaningfully forward into new avenues of interrogation and articulation. No scholar interested in constructive, contextual, political, and liberation theology in India can afford to miss this substantial work by Hebden.' Sathianathan Clarke, Wesley Theological Seminary, USA 'This book offers a novel, hermeneutical prescription for Dalit theology. It weaves together critically, from unlikely sources such as anarchism and indigenous and Christian elements that raise Dalit theology onto an exhilarating new level. Essential reading for those engaged in theology.' R.S.Sugirtharajah, University of Birmingham, UK 'Keith Hebden presents great liberative insights on Dalit theology and Christian Anarchism. This lively book with its intellectual depth and honesty, is a gift to all readers. A perfect book for the intellectually inquisitive.' The Rt. Revd. Dr. B. Sathyanandam Devamani CSI Bishop of Dornakal Diocese and Chairman, Dalith Commission of NCCI '... [Hebden's] creative reading of Dalit alienation and oppression in relation to the gospels is a provocative contribution to Dalit theology, useful for anyone working in this area. Research libraries should have this book.' Religious Studies Review

Keith Hebden is an assistant curate at Saint Katharine's Anglican Church in Matson, Gloucester. Gloucester Diocese is twinned with two partner dioceses in India. Previously studying and co-tutoring at Queen's Foundation Birmingham, Keith completed his PhD in Dalit theology in January 2008 at Birmingham University. Keith has spent over a decade travelling to India to conduct field research and to work with churches and NGOs in Karnataka Central and Gujarat. In 2006 Keith launched the Christianity and anarchism conference in Leeds with the help of a local church and the international web group Jesus Radicals. This conference has proved popular over two years with a growing network of around 200 people plus an unknown quantity of people indirectly influenced. In 2008 he re-launched and now edits the free magazine 'A Pinch of Salt: Christianity and anarchism in dialogue" and is involved in ongoing dialogue with both the Christian activist community and other anarchist groups. Keith is also a member of Academics and Students Interested in Religious Anarchism a sub-committee of the Anarchist Studies Network and has submitted a paper on Dalit theology and anarchism at their first academic conference at Loughborough University.
